Saturday afternoon dose of 1979
David Bowie, Klaus Nomi and Joey Arias perform Bowie's tune The Man Who Sold the World as SNL's musical guest in 1979. I loved Real People as a teen, especially the segments with the weirdos.

I cut back on reading biographies and autobiographies. I didn't like the ugly things I was learning. So many of our beloved artists were abused, ripped off and discarded. I have yet to learn much about Mr. Lymon because it didn't end well. I prefer to think of him as an incredible performer who contributed greatly to the world. He was only 14 in the above clip while singing the decades-old standard Goody Goody.
